I just started listening to the third of my five Cybils-nominated YA books. Listening, rather than reading, because I got this one on CD just yesterday.
I usually make no distinction between the experience of reading and listening, when it comes to the quality of a book. In this case however, I'll have to go get a hard copy, just to be sure it isn't the audio-reader that's making this "read" so difficult.
Update: It got much better in the second half.
